Hi,
I have been trawling the Internet as I need a 90's costume for my daughter age 7.
It's 100 years celebration of her school and her year got the 1990's.

Spice girls seems too obvious,
Then I thought hip hop with gold bling track suit etc..
Then I thought madonna in gold leotard with small fake boobs.!

As this is judged at school and home made wins points any ideas...?.

Thanks in advance.

Grunge would work (flannel shirts).

Also the early 90s was still with the neons and oversized shirts over leggings with slouch socks and scrunchies in the hair.

A good source of mid 90's teen fashion would the the tv show "My So-Called Life", I'm sure you could find some still or cast photos on the web.

Dress her backwards a la Criss Cross.

Or, make it "Hammer Time".

Look up some Beverly Hills 90210, Saved By the Bell, etc.

Please no boobies for your little one!

Black tights, black lace up boots, baby doll dress. Bkack smudgy eyeliner. Easy peasy, and not too sexy for a young girl.

What about grunge? A baggy flannel shirt partly tucked into jeans and covered by an army surplus jacket. Maybe a band t-shirt under the flannel.

One website suggested Shabby Chic -

Quote:
Shabby Chic
Toward the end of the decade, A re-emergence of the hippie styles of the 1970s collided with the grunge look to create a style known as Shabby Chic. It also became known as "Boho" fashion, meaning a bohemian look mixed with the styles of Soho, the artistic district in New York. This trend included long skirts or dresses, often with soft, feminine patterns like flowers, combined with a baggy t-shirt and a flannel shirt or men's blazer worn over it. When pants were worn instead, they were often men's dress pants or very baggy overalls or jeans. Enormous sunglasses and layers of necklaces or bangle bracelets were often seen with this look.


Or something bright and baggy, like these:


Here's and interesting site (with a few links). This has some good suggestions also. Some of what people have been suggesting here sounds more like 80s to me, than 90s.

What's funny is when I looked for 90s costumes photos (instead of fashions) I got mostly Spice Girls, a bit of Clueless, Tiffani Amber Thiessen, and one Golden Girls. LOL

DonnaH that sweatshirt with the black band through the middle looks just like my first sewing project in Jr High. That was a bad time for fashion.

Well, not sure where my brain is but the first thing that came to my mind was one of the Power Rangers :)

I second this. I recently re-watched this series on Netflix--they really nailed how those of us who were teenagers then dressed.

It sounds very little hard. Ask google and buy something similar.
